Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Flaps open on six cards that a girl gives to her family in the board book My Special Valentines by Kelli Chipponeri, illus. by Judith Moffatt, to reveal a special message ("Roses are red, Violets are blue" conceals "You're the best, Mom. That's why I love you!") while cut-paper collage adds visual interest.
Children's Literature
The young girl in this board book is having lots of fun making valentines for her family. She creates them for Mom and Dad, her brother and sister, and grandma, too. Each has a card with a message tailored to the recipient. The one for grandma makes note of her baking abilities while the one for her sister, Erin, contains a sweet message about how cool her older sister is. The cards can be opened to read the messages. The bright, bold illustrations are created with cut paper. The resulting collages have a real three-dimensional look. A sweet treat for Valentine's Day. 2002, Price Stern Sloan,
